I'm Still Alive

And so far so good! Still waiting for the U/S and then I'll have more to update. Just another week to go. Slowly but surely starting to feel pregnant. :)

I Think it Worked!

My beta number really threw me for a loop. I've just got to remember that we did a 6dt. My beta was 625. The guys are feeling really good and I'm glad it worked, but now I'm a bit nervous...just please don't let it be 3 again!

Since I'm feeling pretty good about things, I decided to go ahead and post. We had our transfer on Tuesday June 8th. I arrived in LA on Sunday afternoon as our transfer was scheduled for Monday the 7th...what do ya know? It got pushed to Tuesday. I know the Dr. wanted to grow the embryos out one more day, but I'm still not 100% sure why. We transferred 3 embryos, 2 perfect and one straggler. Went back to hotel and you can guess the rest. The highlight of the trip was getting to see Morgan Freeman hanging out at our hotel and the saddest part was the fact that, due to bedrest, I missed seeing Johnny Depp hanging out by the pool! Oh well.

The good news now is that my tests have been beautiful, positive that is. Here's a pic of the progression.

Blood test is scheduled for Friday. So far, we've jumped the first hurdle. We still have more to go. Friday will be the second and the U/S date will be the third. If we can just make it to the U/S without miscarrying this time, we will all be thrilled!

Surprise Surprise

We're in the exact same boat as last time. We got 10 eggs, only 7 were good quality, only 5 fertilized. Last time we had 4 eggs the day of transfer, we transferred 2 and we were going to freeze the remaining 2. The doctor was going to grow them out one more day and they died.

Who knows what this time will bring. Honestly, we're just praying for one healthy embryo to transfer.

Pre-Transfer Present

My generous IF's sent a bottle of red wine to me today. How sweet! They want me and my husband to enjoy it before we embark on our next adventure together.

As a side note...from 30 follicles, only 10 eggs were retrieved so we're hoping for some good news tomorrow!

Another Blog Change

I needed another change...I really like this one. It's fun to change!

Transfer is coming up really soon. I just read back over the last year and really think that for the most part, I was pretty happy and optimistic. It makes me sad to see how I really haven't been posting many details or simply blogging lately. I guess I'm just tired of getting hopes up just to be let down. Maybe if no one knows what's going on then no one has to say sorry...next time!

Without saying too much, I do know that donor has 30 follicles which may or may not be a good thing. You'd think, oh, that will be a lot of eggs...but the quality might not be there. IF's have friends that had an ED in the recent past that had 30 follicles and they only got one egg that didn't make it. So you just never know!

I am getting excited once again and I do feel good about this transfer so we will just see what happens. I really truly feel like my IF's deserve this and it is their time.
